2017 Queen

Hola’, I am Lillian Elizabeth LaTour and I am honored to be the 42nd Annual Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Queen.

I am the 17 year old daughter of Clayton and Kristen LaTour of Many and the grand-daughter of Dennis and Brenda LaTour of Coushatta and Julie Powell of Natchitoches.  I am the oldest of 4 children with three younger brothers; Jay, Jacob, and Dage.

This is my junior year at Many High School where I am on the varsity cross country and track teams.  For the past two years I have been a state qualifier in cross country, a 2015 district qualifier in track, and a 2016 regional qualifier.  I am also active in the 412 club at our school.

In my free time I enjoy running, spending time with friends and family, and traveling.  I look forward to traveling our great state this year representing our Fiesta and community.

The Zwolle Tamale Fiesta is definitely something I look forward to every year.  I love to participate in the 5k run (and have even won my division in 2015), the famous parade, arm wrestling, mud bog, great bands, and, of course, the tamales.  I love the way the fiesta celebrates the community’s rich culture and brings our whole parish together for a weekend of family friendly fun.

Please join me at this year’s Fiesta, held October 12-14, and every year the second weekend of October.  There is truly something for everyone and our tamales will keep you coming back for more!
